New Delhi, May 5: Sudhir Yadav, the 1985 batch IPS officer of Delhi Police, was today appointed as new Director General (DG) of Tihar.

An AGMU cadre officer Yadav earlier served as DGP of Andaman and Nicobar Islands in 2013. After joining police service as an IPS officer in 1985 he went on to serve on various important posts of Delhi Police.

Earlier, Delhi government had appointed JK Sharma as new DG of Tihar on April 19, but the order was nullified as the government had not sought prior approval of Lt Governor Najeeb Jung before the appointment.

A day after taking charge, Sharma had stepped down as Tihar DG contending that the government did not seek prior approval from the Lt Governor Jung for his appointment.

The post of DG Tihar was lying vacant after Alok Kumar Verma became Commissioner of Delhi Police at the end of February.
